I am a multi-talented British-Nigerian artist with interest in landscapes, figures and the words in between. Started painting again in 2017 since studying Fine Arts at the Yaba College of Arts & Technology, Nigeria with specialty in Graphic design. With a postgraduate degree in Marketing Communication from Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, when not painting, I am working in my marketing/graphic design corner creating strategies or managing integrated communications projects. Or I am plain out having fun with family/ friends playing tennis, bowling or just seeing non-exotic places!
So why Visual Art? On one hand, I create art (and indeed literature) to release the tension that may otherwise shorten my life :). On the other, I paint to celebrate the beauty in a world full of vile hate and negativity. I believe that livening faces through art (and poetry) is a life worth living.
L!, my second exhibition (coinciding with my 50th birthday) is coming up this winter. This is sequel to a successful one held last summer at Ulster Gallery, in Manchester. 10% of all sold works went to BoothCentre (a local charity looking after homeless people in Manchester). Keep your eyes peeled!
